Pitt quarterbacks coach Todd Dodge caused quite a stir at practice on Tuesday with the news that walk-on quarterback Trey Anderson is now the backup to starter Tino Sunseri. I went into this in great detail over at Cardiac Hill, but believe me, this is a big deal.
For Myers to fall from looking like a potential starter down the line for Pitt last season to a third string (and, really, fourth-string behind Anthony Gonzalez who beat him out in the Spring) is a colossal drop. When you add in the fact that the heralded four-star recruit Chad Voytik will be coming in next year, it’s tough to see where Myers fits long-term.
Gonzalez, for what it’s worth, played a few positions such as H-back and receiver for Pitt today according to Zeise. That could open the door for some playing time for him and also clear up the quarterback rotation a bit, but it’s still a bit crowded for Myers if he can’t jump Anderson.
